.- Mari Carmen Dominguez, mother of Olga Bejano, the most famous paraplegic woman in Spain who died last December, said this week that the books she helped her daughter write have caused four people to change their minds about committing suicide.

“It was worth it for Olga to write the books just for those people,” Dominguez said during the presentation of Olga’s book, “Alas Rotas” (Broken Wings), published in Madrid.

Olga was not able to see, speak, move or breathe without assistance. However, with much patience she was able to write four books which she scribbled out with the help of her nurse.

Dominguez recalled that after writing her first two books, “We began to receive dozens of letters, hundreds a few months later, and thousands through the years.”  “Among them were letters from at least four people who shared a hair-raising experience: they had considered taking their own lives, and after reading Ogla’s books, they found a new joy for their existence.”

For this reason, she said Olga’s mission was one of “bring people closer to God.”  “I have no doubt God chose her for this mission, and the fruits have been innumerable,” she said.
